This place was a great reference resource of history of Indonesia. They have a wide selection of art, figurines, and all you can imagine. I went with a friend and we had a great time and learned quite a bit about the history. You should get the audio helpers to listen and help you in your tour.

We really liked the museum since it gives a very interesting and detailed description of Indonesia's economic history from 18th (and before) until today. It is a good intro to your visit in Jakarta and Kota area.

Nice museum located in awesome Dutch-era building which was HQ for Dutch Indies central bank the Javasche Bank, built in the 1930s. Excellent modern displays with full interactivity, very interesting displays on history of Indonesian economy from pre-colonial era to post-Reformation era. The collection of old money is especially interesting. All for very cheap entry fee of IDR 5,000

Walk through Indonesia's past starting from the days of colonization all the way to its independence and formation of its own bank and currency. Hosts a display of currency from almost every country in the world from the mid 1900s. The displays, lighting and sound... More

You don't normally expect to see good and interesting museums in Jakarta. Jakarta is known more for its numerous poshy malls, pollution, chaos and bad traffic. But this museum of Central Bank of Indonesia slowly changes the image of the city. It is an absolute gem....you can find so many information about the history of the birth of Indonesian currency...

We have no high expectation when we visited this place last year but it turn out that this place was awesome. This is a good place for everyone to learn about Indonesian currency and more especially their history. The entry fee is reasonable but the location is a bit hard for us to find and it is difficult to get... More

Modern museum with an exhibition of the rupiah/monetary system of Indonesia including historic events related to the currency. Entrance fee is 5.000 rupiah (€ ~0.35) and free for students. Staff is friendly Exhibition is interesting to see with a good combination of text (Indonesian + English) and relics.
